More Requirements In SD Law For Amusement Rides

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard has authorized a new law governing amusement rides.

The policy requires operators of such rides to get certified inspections yearly and conduct a daily review of equipment on their own. They have always been required to have insurance.

Riders also are charged with personal responsibility in the law and are expected not to enter a ride if intoxicated, for example.

Sen. Al Novstrup is president of Thunder Road attractions, a Dakotas chain of family fun parks. He was a co-sponsor of the measure. He said in a February hearing on the bill that the industry supports the policy change.

Rides in 44 other states are similarly regulated.

The changes will take effect in July.
